"TEDxShekouIntlSchool: Dear Future Self"


On March 11, 2023, Shekou International School hosted a TEDx event with the theme "Dear Future Self," aimed to encourage students and teachers to think about topics that are relevant to their hopes, fears, and aspirations for the future and to share their ideas and perspectives with others.

The event featured diverse speakers, including students from different grades, nationalities, and backgrounds. Students presented on various topics, including environmental sustainability, mental health, education, technology, and personal growth. The speakers delivered their talks confidently and passionately, showcasing their ability to think critically and express themselves effectively. They used various techniques, including storytelling, humour, and multimedia, to engage their audience and convey their message. It was a fantastic opportunity for students to express themselves and promote their critical thinking, creativity, and public speaking skills.

Such school events are important for the school community as they create a platform for students to share their passions by giving students a voice and empowering them to impact the world by presenting topics that matter to them.

It was a meaningful experience for everyone involved. It demonstrated the power of student-led initiatives in promoting positive change and their brave willingness to make a difference in the world.
